Try with spin-kickstarts-0.16.4-1.fc16.noarch from updates-testing.

My own remix is under 1.8 GB in Fedora 15 but on Fedora 16 it is around 2.1 GB. With Fedora 15 they switched to xz compression... and it saved a lot of space. Something is really out of whack with the compression now.
That seems like a premature conclusion. Packages get more features and
grow bigger and get more dependencies.
Going over 2G might reveal bugs in some tools. That could perhaps
explain the isohybrid error you mentioned.
